GenCon is the largest tabletop game convention in North America by both attendance and number of events. It features traditional pen-and-paper, board, and card games, including role-playing games, miniatures wargames, live-action role-playing games, collectible card games, and strategy games.
This year, 2022, GenCon is partnering with Rose Gauntlet to host a BIPOC Lounge that is focused on highlighting, uplifting and connecting BIPOC members of the TTRPG space. Upon its announcement right wingers screamed that the lounge was an act of segregation. In this episode, I talk about what the right is saying, define segregation, give a brief historical perspective and give a definitive answer to the question Is GenCon Pro Segregation? 10 bucks says you can guess the answer.
